Ras Kimono Interview On This And That....

Nigerian reggae music artiste, Ras Kimono has said that he was not reckless as a young man, even at the height of his fame.






In a recent chat with Sunday Scoop, he said, “I have never smoked and I don’t drink alcohol. I tell people I have been a vegetarian for 37 years. Even when my friends were having sex with two girls at the same time in those days, I didn’t join them. I have never done what these girls and boys call threesome despite being famous and I am sure there are other people who have never done that too.


When people attribute recklessness to youthful exuberance, I get worried because I once passed through that stage too. I believe it is all about your upbringing. The fact that you are young doesn’t mean you should be wayward.


Speaking about his unwillingness to change his music to appeal to a younger audience, Kimono stated, “I have been playing reggae music for years and I don’t plan to change my style or dilute it. Those who want to listen will surely do. The truth is that you can force a horse to the river, but you can’t force it to drink from it. We still have a lot of youths who know my value. I don’t believe that all the youths are senseless.


I believe two million youths out of five million youths know the difference between good and bad. If I had changed my style, I would probably not be here talking to you. I am certain the media would have crucified me that I did it for the love of money. My brand of music has kept me alive and still makes me relevant.


However, the reggae exponent released some songs last year, which didn’t have much impact. He says it is because they weren’t accompanied with music videos. “I plan to shoot videos this year. Though people think CDs don’t sell again, I belong to the school of thought that believes that CDs must sell. The Internet is still not available to everyone in the country, especially for people in the North. Many people in the rural areas still prefer buying CDs.

  5. Thumbs up! This man is an epitome of a role model. Lot of today's youth has been carried away with fame. Using and consuming Hard drugs and alcohol has become the order of the day.

    I pity my generation.
